Metro will continue more rail improvements on the Green Line this weekend. In order to complete the work, four Green Line stations — Mariposa, El Segundo, Douglas and Redondo Beach — will be closed this Friday, March 20 at 9 p.m. and reopen for start of service Monday, March 23.
Free bus shuttles will replace all rail service between Aviation/LAX and Redondo Beach stations. This means Redondo Beach-bound trains will end at Aviation/LAX and return towards Norwalk. Regular weekday service will not be affected.
The scheduled upgrade work will include signal system repairs at the El Segundo switch, similar to signal work done last month that will allow a smoother transition of trains coming in and out of the stations.
Customers transferring from Aviation/LAX Station to bus shuttles will not need to TAP. Those who are transferring from bus shuttles to Aviation/LAX Station will need to TAP at the fare gates.
Between Norwalk and Aviation/LAX stations, the Metro Green Line will run every 15 minutes during the day and every 20 minutes after 8:30 p.m., with exact trip times adjusted to allow our crews to work. Please allow extra travel time and use Nextrip for real-time arrivals.
We know this will be an inconvenience to some, and Metro would like to thank all Green Line customers for their patience and understanding as this work is essential to Metro’s overall plan to improve rail service.
